Change to our services in Chiang Mai

This world location news article was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

From 1 February 2015 there will be a change to notarial and documentary services at the British Consulate in Chiang Mai

With effect from 1 February 2015 the British Consulate in Chiang Mai will cease providing notarial and documentary services e.g. pension letters, affirmations, certification of documents. These services will be provided by the British Embassy in Bangkok.

The changes to how we provide our notarial and documentary services in Thailand are part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s 2013-2016 Consular Strategy, launched by the British Foreign Secretary in April 2013. The strategy commits us to providing a more professional, modern and streamlined service for British Nationals who require access to notarial and documentary services.

Information on how to apply for your specific notarial or documentary need can be found on Notarial and documentary services guide for Thailand or by telephoning +66 (0) 2 305 8333.

Many of the services can be provided by mail. For the few services that require attendance in person, the British Embassy provides a same day service subject to the application being correctly completed. To avoid delays, please submit your application in good time and provide all the necessary documentation and the appropriate fee for the service you require.
